Your opportunity to transform a young person’s life
The Bursary Fund is the cornerstone of LEH’s fundraising efforts and thanks to the generosity of our community, we are closer than ever to making the opportunity of an LEH education available to any bright girl who wishes to come here, regardless of her family’s financial circumstances. However, there are still many deserving girls who we are unable to help. Last year applications for support went up by over 50% and current circumstances mean that need will likely increase further in the coming months and years.
If you share our vision to make ‘needs blind’ admission to LEH a reality, please consider making a donation, or contact our Development Department (linked) for more information. By giving, you confirm your belief in the work of our school, the dedication of our teachers, and the impact an LEH education will have on a girl’s future. Such gifts ensure that we have the resources to create a community of bright, widely representative young people whose ultimate impact on society is incalculable.
58 students are currently supported by the school's Bursary Fund
Over 70% have a free place
An LEH bursary covers not only tuition but all associated costs such as uniform, transport to and from school, curriculum trips and lunches
Over the past five years, almost 1/3 of former bursary beneficiaries chose to study Medicine. Many are now working as junior doctors, barristers and teachers.
We have set ourselves the ambitious target of supporting 100 pupils by 2025, with a fundraising goal of £1m a year
I hope that there will come a time when the Bursary Fund is sufficiently funded to overcome financial barriers and educate every girl deserving of a place at LEH, and so I sincerely urge all those who are in the position to do so, to donate and give more girls like me an opportunity that I have been so privileged to receive.

Though I am not yet a mother, I can already say that I would want my daughter to attend LEH. There are undoubtedly thousands of parents who feel the same way, many of whom would struggle to realise this dream without the help of the LEH Bursary Fund.
The bursary scheme enabled me to receive an excellent education and be part of a welcoming and exciting community, which I would not otherwise be able to access.

At LEH I was lucky to receive an education where I was encouraged to believe that anything was achievable.
